Save white rhinos💖 happy #earthday 🌎

#RepostSave @natgeo with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Najin relaxes with a flock of oxpecker on her back. The oxpecker rest on the back of rhino, ridding them of pests like ticks, flies and other bugs and give off loud warning hisses when they see danger, providing a kind of alarm system, while also taking little sips of blood from the large mammal.

Najin is the daughter of Sudan, the last male white rhino who passed away on Mar. 19, and the mother of Fatu. Najin and Fatu are the last northern white rhino in all the world. Along with Sudan, they were transported from the Dvůr Králové Zoo (@safari_park_dvur_Kralove) in the Czech Republic to Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in Kenya’s plains in a last ditch effort to encourage them to breed and save the species. The air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time there were eight northern white rhino in the world. Now there are two.
Yet all hope is not lost. Scientists believe they can bring the species back from the brink of extinction using IVF and stem cell science and are working toward that end. Whether science can save the species is unknown but my hope is that Sudan's legacy can be a HUGE wake up call for all of us. We can all make impacts in our own small ways for a world of co existence.

With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from Czech republic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dour Krylov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Let's protect these magnificent creatures. #SudanForever#WorthMoreAlive #OlPejetaRhinos #NorthernWhiteRhinos #protectrhinos #DontLetThemDisappear #rhinos #saverhinos #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale #repost

Annika @girlwiththefionatatoo has been telling me about the many beautiful animals that will be extinct in less than 20 years: Black Jaguars, Scarlett Macaws, and Rhinos 🦏to name just a few. I hope this new generation will find ways to save what we’ve killed off in just 3 generations. 🙏🏼😢🌏
.
.
Under the advice from Annika, our family made an official Earth 🌏 Day commitment. We switched to metal straws, bought Silicone reusable/washable plastics bags, and are figuring out how to compost!♻️ Every little change helps.❤️ .

Also, wanted to share about Sudan’s sad legacy as the last male Northern White Rhino on earth.

Waiting For Freedom by #AmiVitale #worldphotopress2018

Environment, first prize singles

September 21, 2017

A young southern white rhinoceros, drugged and blindfolded, is about to be released into the wild in Okavango Delta, Botswana, after its relocation from South Africa for protection from poachers.

Southern white rhinos are classified as ‘near threatened’. Rhinoceros horn is highly prized, especially in Vietnam and China, for its perceived medicinal properties, and in places is used as a recreational drug. Horns can fetch between €20,000 and €50,000 per kilogram. Poaching in South Africa rose from 13 rhinos a year in 2007 to a peak of 1,215 in 2014, and although these figures have declined slightly since then, losses are still unsustainable. Botswana is saving rhinos from poaching hotspots in South Africa and re-establishing populations in its own wildlife sanctuaries.

The earth 🌏 has been crying along w us. Just as our skin speaks to us about distress in uproars and Inflammation, so does the earth. The crazy weather changes and flooding, dry lands crumbling and burning, and the massive extinction of so many rare and beautiful animals, are all voices screaming for us to be accountable. Let us all be committed and courageous in our mission to heal our earth. In this journey, I’m sure we will heal ourselves as well.

Photo by @amivitale. Fatu roams the 700 acre enclosure at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) where she has lived alongside her mother, Najin and her grandfather, Sudan, since she was translocated from the Dvur Kralove Zoo (@safari_park_dvur_Kralove) in the Czech Republic. Since the passing of Sudan, Fatu and her mother Najin are the last remaining members of her species, the Northern White Rhino.
The plight of wildlife and the conflict between poachers and increasingly militarized rangers has received much-needed attention. But very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars, and the incredible work being done to strengthen them. We often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities. Their efforts are ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life. My hope is that Sudan’s legacy serves as a catalyst to awaken humanity to this reality.

If you went back 50 years, this is where one of the densest populations of black rhinos lived but today most people living here have never seen a rhino in their life despite it being the most perfect habitat for them. In 2 generations, this animal was poached almost to extinction. These communities and people like Kamara hold the key to saving Africa's great animals.

In this image, Kamara, a Kenyan rhino keeper is nuzzled by black rhino Kilifi who he hand-raised along with two other baby rhinos Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (@lewa_wildlife) in Kenya. Kamara spends 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos.
